MONDO Phonics:

Training coming soon for New K-2 Teachers who have not been trained. The general overview from New Teacher Training Day by the district was not considered a PD on the product. Mark your calendar for either October 5 or 6. Please register in ERO.

Teaching Certificates:

Our HR department notified us that it is time for some teachers to renew their certificates. Please go online and check your certificate expiration date and renew it if necessary. It is very important to know that If your certification is not current, you cannot be in the classroom in front of kids.

Student iPads in the Library:

This is exciting! Our fabulous librarians will be integrating technology into their lessons with 15 library student iPad minis. Technology is everywhere!


Instead of asking students to raise their hand to answer a question... try some of these accountability strategies. (Think Pair Share, Numbered Heads, & Many More)
